PLEASE read my review! This product is head and shoulders above the rest. Perfect really. I purchased TWO other magnifying glasses prior to this one and they were either TOO BIG, TOO HEAVY, Not enough power, Useless shape etc. THIS product gives you the best of all options. It's not too big, not too heavy and you can switch lenses depending on the situation. I noticed today that you CAN order 3 different lenses. I use mine EVERY DAY for either my iPhone 6 or iPod newest generation. SOooooooooo helpful. Although I don't need the LED lights much I keep the product nearby for a quick light for taking pills or other things such as FINDING my phone in the dark. HA ha. Seriously, this is THE product to buy. Don't be dumb and try to install 2 batteries just because that's what this battery compartment "looks like". READ the directions, 3 batteries please. They're EASY to install as are the other lenses. Manufacturer provides a quality lens cleaner and pouch as well. You CAN't go wrong with this one. DON'T buy the HUGE 2X product. It's TOO BIG and TOO heavy for almost any use. The tiny 10X bubble is useless in my opinion. Thanks for reading. Wish I had purchased this one FIRST! I've reviewed many Amazon products and am honest and a decent writer.
This product only worked for about 3 months,and then the light stopped working. (Yes, I replaced the batteries). Loved it while it worked, but disappointed in the short lifespan. I can still use the magnifying glass, but have to use a small flashlight to illuminate some of the small print.UPDATE: iMagniphy contacted me and pointed out that there is a LIFETIME Warranty on their products. They were concerned that their product was not working correctly and that they had not achieved customer service. They immediately sent out a replacement magnifying glass that is working great. I am SOOOO impressed with their concern for customer satisfaction and the quality of their products. It works great and makes my life so much easier to have a magnifying glass with a light that is so easy to use and so comfortably designed. I will absolutely use this vendor again and will tell me friends of the product itself.
The product is great. I gave it to my 94 year old mother. She doesn't have strong hands but she is able to handle this glass easily. The LED lights on the underside provide focused illumination, which is as necessary as the magnification for someone with poor vision. The small 10x lens is actually large enough to use for reading a book. The competitive products only had small quarter size or smaller spots of higher magnification. Lenses are easy to change, secure when attached. the handle has a great grip and the overall weight of the glass is very manageable.Saving the best for last. The very day the glass was delivered I received a cheerful email from the company checking to see if the glass was in good working order and if I was happy with it. I explained it was a gift for my mother and I'd get her personal review after she tried it out. A few weeks after she received it, one of the two LED bulbs went out. Mom was still using it, but she had really enjoyed the light from both bulbs. LED bulbs, particularly small ones, are fragile and it's easy to see how there might be a defect or error in manufacturing, but I was still very happy with the product. I emailed the company only to see if I might get a replacement bulb or get the info necessary to track down a replacement on my own. I wrote the email on a Saturday night because that's when I remembered to do it. Imagine my surprise in a couple of hours when I got a reply from a human being, not an auto-responder. He was not in a third world call center. He asked for the address to send a complete replacement glass, without even expecting me to return the one with the bad LED. What?? I was flabbergasted. This company answered me personally, in a couple of hours on a weekend, not days or weeks, and wanted to send a free replacement without even being asked? He did it, too. That was several months ago and all the LEDs in the new glass are still working just fine, the lenses still interchange easily and often, while my Mom does NY Times crossword puzzles (at 94). Thanks to iMagniphy, she can enjoy activities that require magnification, which is about everything for her. I don't believe I've ever been the recipient of this kind of personal customer service. I wouldn't hesitate to buy any product they sell. If they go public, I'll buy stock. Any company as concerned with ensuring a successful product experience for their customers as this company is deserves to be successful. Buy from them fearlessly. They've got your back. My only regret is that it took me this long to get back to write this review.
I rarely leave a review, but this product is definitely deserves a review. I bought both sets of magnifying glasses from iMagniphy because my mom has Macular Degeneration. She has been suffering with this for many years, and hates it she can't see to do little things like read a price tag or a label when shopping or just preparing dinner. She can no longer drive, so my sister and I take her everywhere. She asked if I could find her a magnifying glass that would work for her to read labels. We have tried everyone I could find, from every store and still they just didn't work for her. When I saw that these were for people with Macular Degeneration, I had to give them a try. They arrived very quickly and were packaged very well. They cam with 3 lenses, one handle, a protective case and a lens cleaning cloth. I really thought the 16x would work for her, but the lens was a little too small, but the larger 5x with the light worked pretty good. She was so excited but still I knew it could be better so we opened the second package and the 10x worked the best for her. She thanked me so much that I couldn't stop smiling all the way home. These are worth the money 10 fold!
Bought this for my 85-year old ma. She's legally blind from the "dry" type of macular degeneration. Unfortunately, the larger glass isn't strong enough to help her much. But, in my experience, both of them magnify to a higher level than 95% or more of the competition. It the glass you're looking to buy doesn't make you pause and think "Damn--seems expensive," then, trust me, it's only a 2x or 3x strength magnifier.
